The shuttle bus operates seven days a week with staggered daily departures from Liberation Square. Return adult fares are £4.00 and children pay just £3.00.

Saving species from extinction can be done in so many ways; ways you wouldn't have thought of! One great way to do so is to leave an online review of our Park, and help us to spread the word. So if we've managed to sufficiently impress you - and please, let us know if we haven't! - it would be great if you could shout about it from the virtual rooftops of TripAdvisor.
